i have only been shooting for about 3 years. so not really that long. i have also been blessed with 3 different cameras over the past 3 years, some of them good some not so good. like a p+s fuji fine pix, great in some ways but really hard to handle and kind of grainy looking. my a2 which is amazing and i love every thing about it except the cost but i love the controlability. my 10D which is awesome in some ways but sucks in others. for instance its easy to use, but i hate the small viewfinder, its bad color rendition, having to deal with opening raw files one at a time because my computer doesn't like them and MOSTLY because i dont want to buy a new lens that would give me a wide angle for just this camera when i am not sure that it is going to be around that long. its getting up in years for a digital camera and as much as i try to convince my self that it is going to last i am afraid that it wont be around much longer. so i sit here wondering if it is worth converting wholy to film cause i like my sliides better than the digitall picture i get with the 10D, better color and the A2 is just easier for me to see out of/ use. or do i try and get a digital equivalent of the A2? unfortunately both options cost a fair amount. i dont mind using film but slides are not very cost effective, prints i have only had so so luck with, and to get a digital with a big veiwfinder, and one that delivers as good of color as my slides plus a wide angle lens ( or a digital with a full frame sensor). is going to cost quite a bit more than i am willing to put out. film is also slowly going away though so... ( lastly it is also starting to get more appealing to do my own printing and processing but... ) and lastly some times i think i could save a lot of trouble by going to something like a G10, it doesn't seem to fit any of my current desires except it would last, be somewhat affordable, and i could carry it every where so all the pictures i take for the heck of it wouldn't cost me anything really and i can shoot the expensive film stuff for stuff i really want. ohh and it has a 28-140 mm eqivalent lens, which is nice. so does any one else have any advice on going all film, getting an old eos 1ds (the original), or getting a 30 or 40D + 17-40 f4 or 17-50 f2.8 tamron. or do i just give in to the old p+s option.
